SDHD: "What if its own citizens were removed from those territories only 19 years earlier?" Those Jews (all 10,000 of them) were all resident in territory that was assigned to the "Arab state" in the Partition Plan i.e. they were *not* resident in the "Jewish state" when that state was declared and, therefore, they could not have been "Israeli citizens" when they were "removed". But, regardless, the answer to your question is this: IF they are "Israelis" who have a legitimate right to "return" to their homes THEN they must wait until Israel ends this occupation BEFORE they can exercise their legal rights to do so. Precisely because Israel is prohibited by Art 49 from championing their legal rights WHILE it is the occupying power.
